REVIEW: Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh

Dear Ms. Singh:

Visions of Heat is the sequel to your debut novel Slave to Sensation. While Visions of Heat didn’t quite live up to StoS, it was still a good read. This alternate realty romance provides a rich otherworld filled with three distinct groups: Psy, Changeling and human. Like Slave to Sensation, Visions features a strong Psy female and a delicious Changeling male.

Faith Nightstar is an FPsy, a foreseer, who is worth untold millions to the Nightstar clan due to her ability to foresee economic changes in the future. She has been making predictions since the age of 3 and not one of her predictions, unless intervened, has been wrong. As any valuable asset, Faith has been protected and hidden for all of her life. FPsy’s often go mad toward the latter end of their usability and then the Psy use those people for parts or scientific study. Faith has been able to stave off madness, but she has some concerns when she begins to have strange, non financially related visions. These visions lead her to seek out Sascha Duncan, the Psy who dropped out of the network and the only person who would not seek to betray or mislead Faith.

Sascha Duncan lives with her Changeling family and this puts Faith in close proximity to Vaughan, a Dark River sentinel. Vaughan’s cat, the jaguar, is intensely interested in Faith. The cat’s need for sensory input juxtaposed against Faith’s physiological abhorrence for touch made for immediate conflict. Beyond Faith’s predisposition for mental instability is the present danger in the from of a killer who is strangling Psy women, starting with Faith’s sister. Faith must seek out the killer on the Psy Net, cope with Vaughan’s physical demands and find a place for herself in a changing world.

The challenges I had with this book were episodes of inappropriate lusting despite the justification of the jaguar’s nature. I also found the time spent on the Psy Net to be a bit difficult to follow and, at times, a bit repetitive of Slave to Sensation. I hate to say that a story is too complex, but at times, it was for me.

I was really intrigued by a couple of characters deftly introduced and that was Faith Nightstar’s father, Anthony Kyriakus, who isn’t all that he is portrayed to be and Kaleb Krychek, a contender for the Psy Council. I think that rebellion is brewing within the Psy and I am anxious to see how that plays out in future books.

Fans of your first book, and those who like Linda Howard and Christine Feehan, won’t be disappointed. B.

Best regards,

  1. I loved StS but only liked VoH. I felt the story dragged a little but I am still excited to see where the overall story arc goes.
